Exclusive Mother's Day Poster
Rebecca De Mornay gets her mean on

26 May 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Horror remakes may be two a penny these days but in Mother's Day we could have a retread with real spike. There’s nothing Hallmark-approved here. It's directed by Saw veteran Darren Lynn Bousman who's attempted to twist the cult Troma original into something slicker but no less scary.

Dominating this new quad poster is the titular mom – a welcome return to frightsville for Rebecca De Mornay – who takes the role played by Beatrice Pons in the 1980 version, Natalie 'Mother' Koffin. Think Ma Jarrett spliced with the Lord of Darkness himself and you’re on the right track.


In the Charles Kaufman original, her sons rape and murder to impress her. Here, Scott Milam’s script gives them a motivation that stretches beyond the Freudian – the three boys, Matt O'Leary, Warren Kole, Patrick John Flueger, return to their childhood home to reclaim it from the new residents. And possibly moiderise them. Before you can say 'Second To Last House On The Left', the residents are fighting back. Expect things to get nasty, quickly.

Mother's Day is out on June 10. Check out the trailer here.
